18th June – Arrival of the Eco Candle

The eco candle is coming to us for a week beginning on Tuesday 18 June. The Eco Candle has been travelling from church groups and parishes the length and breadth of Ireland, including Northern Ireland. 

Its purpose is to focus our attention on what we can do, personally and together, to stop trashing the beautiful gift of life which God has given us to share. 

“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it’ (Ps24): 

As we face environmental problems people are searching for signs of hope. 

The school children of Carrigaline are generally more eco aware than most and will lead us in prayer during our week of hosting the Eco Candle.
